Redeeming Economics: Free Markets and the Human Person

Our best economist thus far has been Augustine. This, in effect, is the argument of John D. Mueller’s contrarian and groundbreaking Redeeming Economics, which posits that economic theory has since Adam Smith mistakenly discarded from its analyses basic elements of economic behavior. Through numerous examples and arguments, Mueller argues for the renewal of a “neoscholastic” economics that not only incorporates a theory of personal, social and political gifts, but also recognizes Augustine’s “divine trace of equity” as a key source of market order.
